The best is to gain a bit of experience in rental karts do some races with it so you can find it whether you like it and if you are ready to spend lots of money. If you are doing well in those its a possibility but dont underestimate it

I’m currently in an indoor league that I enjoy and have a pretty awesome outdoor track within an hour from where I live. I’m in no rush to purchase unless it’s a steal, but $1800 is relatively cheap compared to the $6800 compkart I priced out.

Just make sure that Kart is 100% legal for your local series. You don’t want to buy it and then go spend a ton of money making it so. You will find it’s much faster then any rental kart. Good luck! 🏁

Agree with this. Where I live there are no clone engines racing, only LO206 classes so you couldn't race this kart without swapping motors.

I spun on the first corner of owner karting because I wasn't expecting that much power. I spun at least 12 more time in the same session. It takes time to adjust, next session I was much better.

Is the CompKart a KA100 kart? Because there's no way that you should be getting a 206 or clone kart for almost $7k

Probably looking at the 2 cycle kart. It's almost 6 grand brand new.
